The best part of the book is all the stories of adults who discover how their life is affected by ADD. Jun 22, Ruth rated it it was amazing.
This is an ti book for anyone searching for insights into living with ADHD. Bipolar felt like a death sentence, but I read the books – mostly connecting to symptoms like “overwhelmed” and “overstimulated”. I’m so glad I did though. And the recognition of all the emotions, like how hopeless you can feel if you’re constantly criticised, and even agree with the critics, yet not knowing how to do better.
I broke down and borrowed some Adderall from a helpful friend who said “it’s great for deadlines”, and then sequestered myself at another friend’s apartment And I felt oddly tired. Even when I started reading Driven to DistractionI was reading it to become more familiar with what someone else was going through actually, what several people I know and care about were going through than reading it fistraction myself.
Through the stories of the patients in this book, I got a much better hallowel, of how ADHD shows up.
